DIS provides Transportation Passes to students living in DIS housing, with the exception of students who live within walking distance from DIS.
Your Transportation Pass entitles you to travel within the given zones and dates with the transportation companies in the Greater Copenhagen area. Transportation Passes are valid for the metro, S-Tog, Regional Trains, buses, and Harbor Buses, as long as you are in the appropriate zone.
Important to Remember
- Keep track of your Pass – protect it as you would cash and your passport. Take a picture of your original pass to keep on record
- If you lose your transportation pass, it is your responsibility to replace it
- If your transportation pass is stolen, you can purchase a new pass at the DSB ticketing office in Copenhagen Central Station. After, you may file an insurance claim for the cost of the new pass. Should you have questions regarding this process, you may visit the Housing and Student Affairs office in Vestergade 8
- While traveling in other cities, consider leaving your pass at home
What is the Transportation Pass used for?
The Transportation Pass covers transportation between your housing and DIS. If you take classes outside of DIS, you will likely have extra zones to accommodate this.
If you attend classes or practicum away from DIS, and in addition, live within walking distance of DIS (and therefore do not receive a transportation pass), you will likely receive a rejsekort in addition to your Transportation Pass.
Important: The transportation pass does not cover your travel to and from the airport unless your housing is located in this area.
How do I add more zones to my pass?
If you want to upgrade your transportation pass to cover more zones or for a longer period, you can change it by going to the DSB office at Copenhagen Central Station. Mention that you are a DIS student and that we have an agreement with DSB.

What should I do about my transportation pass if I change housing?
If you change housing, you might have to update your transportation pass, either adding or subtracting zones. Please send an e-mail to email@example.com about this. Stating your present location and the location you will be moving to.
Note: If you for whichever reason during the semester change your transportation pass, then you need to be sure that the 7-digit serial number on the right and the left-hand side of the pass match each other. Failure to have this correct serial number on both sides of the pass will result in a fine if checked.
